Draw or Braga win

Braga have been in excellent form with four wins in the last five games. Meanwhile, Benfica have seen a major slump, as confidence has eroded following the two big defeats against Bayern Munich. After falling down from the top spot, there is also plenty of pressure on Benfica to regain the place from Sporting CP and Porto. Braga have actually done well against Benfica in recent meetings with four wins in the last six.

Total goals under 2.5

One of the strong features of Sporting Braga’s recent domestic form would be the number of goals and some of their games. Even though there have been many high-scoring games, Benfica will be adopting a cautious approach after yet another heavy midweek loss. There will also be some tiredness on the part of Braga, who played on Thursday night.

Both teams to score – yes

The Portuguese league matches from Braga have witnessed goals at both ends in three out of the last five. Benfica’s defensive performances very poor at this moment and they might end up conceding a lot of goals.

Benfica vs Braga: Match Preview and Team News

Benfica

The likelihood of Benfica dropping down the table had been coming over the last few weeks. The club did not heed to the warning signs and the opportunity has been taken up by Porto and Sporting CP. Benfica continue to suffer from a long injury list with Rodrigo Pinho, Valentino Lazaro, Adel Taarabt, Gil Dias, and Haris Seferovic ruled out.

Braga

Braga have an excellent opportunity to close the gap on Benfica down to just three points by the end of this weekend. After having been outside the top six not too long ago, Braga have made a lot of improvements in recent weeks. The club, though, will be without David Carmo and Vítor Tormena for this game.
